This album was imagined as a double LP.
“Sri Ganesha Mantra” is an obstacle breaker mantra,
and “Shiva/Shakti” is inspired by tantric mantras; both include lyrics in Sanskrit.
“Transmigration” was revealed through a dream of near-death-experience.
“Vision Quest” is inspired by the Lakȟóta vision quest song-ritual and includes lyrics in Lakȟótiyapi.
“Psychonauts” is inspired by the Bardo Thödol (Tibetan book of the Dead).

Track Name: Rock On, John!
C'mon, rock on John, you gotta come right on !
C'mon sing this song with all your friends !
We know it won't be long 'til
You're gonna dance and sing along, aren't you gonna ?!
You'll do the twist with everyone you'll meet ,
You're gonna dance, dance, dance all day long.

C'mon, rock on John, you gotta come right on !
C'mon, groove around with all your friends !
You will be swinging all night long, 
You're gonna laugh and sing along, aren't you gonna ?!
You'll make us party 'til the morning comes
Oh do not please, please, please, don't go back home !
(please, please, please, please don't go back home)

Hip-a-little, get around, lift your feet up off the ground
Take my hand and turnaround, make me boogie round and round
Hey you little, look around, tap your feet into the ground
1, 2, 3, 4, turnaround, jump up, there's no one around
Hip-a-little, get around, lift your feet up off the ground
Aaaah

(now skiffle it up, lads!)

C'mon, rock on John, you gotta come right on !
C'mon sing this song with all your friends !
Well you're gonna drink, drink, drink 
And you're gonna, dance, dance, dance, dance ; aren't you gonna ?!
You'll give a smile to everyone around,
You're gonna sing, sing, sing all night long! 

Oh well I almost remember how we danced and sang along this song
Time is missing, gotta wrap it all !

C'mon, c'mon! C'mon right on !
Oh, c'mon, c'mon! C'mon right on !
Now you c'mon! Come... And now you dance alone... 
Track Name: KLP (Kiss, Love, Peace)
You'll never know how much I really love you,
You'll never know how much I really care.
While I don't know why you feel so sad and blue,
I'm here for you and I will go nowhere.

The search for peace of mind is not so easy
But you've got friends with you to help you thru
When you feel like you're getting so unhappy
Don't forget happiness comes back, it's true !

Let's get to the moon, you'll feel all right all night
Open up your mind you'd feel so bright tonight

Stop feeling sad as if your heart was empty
There's so many things out there for you to do
When you feel blue and life seems so uneasy
We'll be there for you because we love you !

Oheï ẁer êsündoh, yünsoẁehl, oheï leïlê sʌënsoh, yütsoẁeloï

Let's fly to the moon, you'll feel all right all night
Open up your mind you'd feel so bright tonight

Yʌëv ehn'szè, yʌëv ehri szê, yünso'dih
-Szʌëv ehri sündoh, yʌëv ehri sündoh !
Yʌëv ehriszê, yʌëvn ẁürlison, yünsohdi
-Szʌëv ehri sündoh, yʌëv ehri sündoh !
Ẁur lyaahn ahnaë süsz'ohri, ehïdoü ehri dündoh !

Let's get to the moon, you'll feel all right tonight
Open up your mind you'd feel so bright all night

Let's fly to the moon, you'll feel all right all night
Open up your mind you'd feel so bright tonight

Let's get to the moon, you'll feel all right tonight
Oheï 'ewoho weïo yüsündoh !

... Nobody told me what to do
Lost in the city, out of view
I fear they'll tear me all apart
It's time to listen to my heart...
Fading away; today I found my way.

Track Name: Psychonauts
Remind your thoughts of the transiency, of our perpetual lives
Clear the mist of your perceptions; everything lies inside
A new dawn awaits for you if you are heading to where we all start to be
Will you believe?

Get high, in the sky!
So high, when you die!
Get high, in the sky!
Oh fly, in the...

Free your mind from the illusion; don't trust your open eyes
Die before you die; transcend the reason why
The vision has been alive since you've awoken;
You were too young to see
Will you believe? (yet to see..)

Get high, in the sky!
Oh fly, in the sky!
So high, when you die!
Get high, in the...

We'll build things never built before
We'll do things never done.
And just before it's over,
It's really just begun...
We'll build things never built before
We'll do things never done.
And just before it's over...

Rip your mind in two; the journey ends for you
Now your soul is ready to be what we all want to be
You won't remember you've been alive
When you'll come back from this mystical dream
Will you believe...?
Now send yourself away...

--"Schindereli rilia nyêhn-nova ienkobàli
hovaa dih süra miszon prïma taurus !"--

Will you get there some day ?
Nobody knows today; be psychonauts every day.
Running away from yesterday,
Yet hoping for better days; be psychonauts every day!
